Bill, we've got a large development here with both townhomes and single family residences and the fee is based on the size of the structure. Different houses have different fees, based on the same rate though. I'm not trying to justify it, just saying that it exists.

I believe you; I just haven't seen it in single family homes, so I'm glad you're pointing it out.

In your development does the association do any maintenance for the single family homes, such as front yard maintenance? I'm wondering why there would be a difference based on structure size if the maintenance is only for common areas, club houses, etc.

This has the famous old answer. Read the docs. The CC&Rs provide the information. We know of both. And there are places with multiple HOAs. In much of Sumerlin in Las Vegas there is a Summerlin fee and a local HOA fee...and SIDs...yet another way of sucking out dollars. Need to add them all to determine what the place really costs.

Mostly the RE Agents that work a development regularly know the drill. We have copies of a number of CC&Rs for communities we work regularly. We don't give them to clients though we do on occassion lend them out. The State Regulations require that the doc package be up to date...this is hard unless you get a fresh package from the Association.

Default Realtor.com should I be troubled that my realtor did not list me on it?

My Realtor has informed me that Realtor.com is pretty much a waste of time. Im not so sure about that. For you agents out there, do your realtor.com listings get a lot of successful hits? I think he is full of crap. What do you think?

Realtor.com is the most searched real estate site followed by another one (I forgot which) and Remax.com is third.

Homes that are on the MLS automatically go on Realtor.com within 48 hours, but with limited photos and text. The realtor can pay extra money to have enhanced listings with more photos and more text, and pay extra for showcase listings, and the list goes on and on.
